ANNOUNCEMENT: SINedelphia: 31 DAYS OF HORROR

I’m pleased to announce that, after months of preparation, Cinedelphia’s celebration of all things horror begins tomorrow.  SINedelphia: 31 DAYS OF HORROR will feature at least one horror film-related post daily throughout the month of October.  Expect to see contests, interviews, reviews, scholarly articles, top 10 lists…all accessible and entertaining enough to satisfy even the artiest of cinematic tastes.  Here’s what you can expect in the next few days:  tomorrow I’ll be announcing a big contest that’s related to the most exciting horror film-related event in Philadelphia (yeah, it’s sold out, but Cinedelphia has two tickets up for grabs…); on Sunday we’ll be showcasing scary movie recommendations from a variety of individuals in the Philadelphia film community; on Monday we’ll announce a contest to attend an advance screening of an upcoming horror film; on Tuesday we’ll be posting an interview with Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp; the list goes on and on and is a veritable cornucopia of the macabre.

And to help you plan out your movie-going month, here’s a list of all of the horror films that are playing in Philly throughout October…feel free to e-mail me with any additions and don’t forget to check out the Philadelphia Film Festival’s upcoming slate for additional horror-related features.
